    Exhibit:      NetLogic Microsystems Booth #3045

At NetLogic booth #3045, Xilinx, NetLogic Microsystems, Inc., Sarance Technologies, Inc., Avago Technologies and Ixia will demonstrate 100Gbps of real Ethernet traffic across the world’s first single-FPGA 100GE targeted design platform for telecommunications equipment manufacturers. This demonstration will showcase the Xilinx Virtex(R)-5 TXT FPGA, NetLogic NLP10142 100GE physical layer solution, Sarance HSEC 100GE MAC and PCS cores, Avago parallel optics, and Ixia 100GE Development Platform.

Altogether, the companies are demonstrating an end-to-end solution for design, development and test of an 802.3ba-compliant 100GE link, making it possible for today’s leading telecommunications equipment manufacturers to accelerate time-to-market, enhance interoperability and reduce development expense for next-generation 100GE.

About Virtex-5 TXT FPGAs

The award-winning Xilinx Virtex-5 TXT FPGA is the world’s first single-chip FPGA optimized for 40-Gigabit Ethernet, 100-Gigabit Ethernet, and other ultra high-bandwidth communication protocol bridging, switching and aggregation applications. Available now in production quantities, Virtex-5 TXT FPGAs take serial connectivity leadership to the highest level with 48 6.5Gbps multi-gigabit (GTX) transceivers and a more efficient implementation of the industry’s first 100-GE media access controller (MAC). Delivering 600Gbps total bandwidth, Virtex-5 TXT FPGAs meet the stringent performance requirements for next generation telecommunications equipment, including 100GbE to 120Gbps Interlaken, 40Gbps Quad XAUI to 50Gbps Interlaken, OC-768 to OTU-3, and SFI-5 to 4xSFI4.2.

Designed to improve signal integrity and lower power consumption for reliable operation of 10/100Gbps links, Virtex-5 FPGAs are the foundational element of a targeted design platform for high-bandwidth protocol bridging, fully supported with application-specific IP, development tools and reference designs. Hardware enhancements unique to Xilinx transceivers reduce the size of the 100GE and Interlaken cores by over 20 percent.
